Maybe there’s an “I” in why…

Have you ever

wanted to

shake your fist at God

and ask

“WHY?”

__________

Why….

the divorce?

the finances?

the death?

the broken friendship?

__________

The heartache?

__________

We look for a reason, some clarity for our situation.

And we find….

Nothing

__________

We question and question

and question

and come up with same answer…

“I don’t know.”

__________

Why do we ask “Why” to God?

Is it because He has “all control?”

Or we need someone to blame?

Or because when tragedy happens…

We finally recognize Him.

__________

Maybe God didn’t want…

The death

The broken friendship

The_________.

But it happened.

So what do we do?

__________

We pick up. We move on.

We have good days. We have bad days.

We trust. 

We stop looking for “the purpose,”

And stop asking “Why?”

__________

And realize, that God is bigger than our situations.

He holds our future.

And He cares beyond our human comprehension.

__________

So, put your fist down

and find rest in this…

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”

                                                                                – Psalm 34:18
